Articles about airship
One of the most unique additions that come to Final Fantasy XIV: Realm Reborn in their first expansion Heavensward is the ability for your Free Company to craft airships. These airships function much like the venture features that players can send their retainers out to do. You build your airship, you send it out, it brings stuff back. It's that simple. However, as with any new expansion, there is little information on how to actually craft the initial airship, much less how to upgrade it. For those who aren't tempted to build an airship as it stands now, in future patches to the expansion, Free Companies will be able to ride it to enter otherwise inaccessible areas in the game. Why not build it now and get a head start on discovering the new places you will go in the future?
The airship industry is probably the only industry to die in modern times because of disasters, although it experienced only two, the R101 and the Hindenberg, which had a combined death-toll of less than 100. There have been much worse disasters, on land, at sea and in the air, but none has brought to such an abrupt halt the industry from which it evolved. Perhaps the seeds of disaster lay not in its flying machines, but in the industry itself, with its vulnerable technology resting upon politics.

It was in World War I that the Royal Navy first combined planes with naval vessels. Then the first flat-deck aircraft carriers sailed, but had little impact. They launched a few small aircraft carrier raids, targeting German airship bases, but battleships still remained prevalent in the world's foremost navies. ...
Awhile back when I was reporting news for a small gaming site, I wrote a little preview about an upcoming game called Evoland. While I wrote news about a lot of games that did little to arouse my interest, Evoland was not the case. What really woke my thirst for this game was that it had a small little free version of the game that essentially gave the gist of what it was all about. I am always a fan of things I can play for free before buying.
Mining is one of the gathering classes in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Mining and it's other gathering classes are all helpfully lumped up in the Disciples of the Land. The class guild for it is based out of the city Ul'Dah, it can only be found there. Unsurprisingly, the resource a miner gathers is ore which can be used for Blacksmithing, Armorer and Goldsmith classes to make gear. This class also generates secondary resources that are used by almost all other classes, making it worthwhile to level if you want to make some money.

This class also generates secondary resources that are used by almost all other classes, making it worthwhile to level if you want to make some money.
Just Cause has never been the most serious of open world action games, but the 400 square miles of Medici in Just Cause 3 brings even more silliness in the secrets and Easter eggs that made previous entries entertaining. From Dark Souls to Stargate, there are pop culture references hidden in them there hills as well as throwbacks to other locations in the Just Cause series, but the question remains - where can they be found?
